"The luxury resort, whose very name means “place of peace” in Sanskrit, is perched on a cliff some 130ft above Pansea Beach in west Phuket. The lush surrounds and insect song, and the rhythmic crashing of the Andaman surf that I can hear from my guest pavilioncontribute, I believe, to the therapeutic environment."

"To make the most of my last full day at this blessed sanctuary, I hit the beach to catch some rays and body boarding."

“For many, the original Aman, which opened in 1988, remains the best. Adrian Zecha’s sleek, clean-lined design embodies Zen minimalism—this is the hotel that spawned a thousand open-plan lobbies… Many Amanpuri staff members have worked here from the beginning, and service is incredible. The swimmable beach is arguably the best on Phuket, and the spa is nestled among palm trees at the top of a cliff.”

"The picturesque bay of the Andaman Sea lies beneath us at the West coast of Thailand. Slowly the sun rises from the gently purling waves and paints the entire scenery in an atmospheric light. The scent of jasmine blossoms eliminates any remaining feelings of stress or gloom. This sense of complete relaxation, calm and serenity must Adrian Zecha also have felt when he came here first to found his first Amanresort, Amanpuri (‘peaceful place’) on this green peninsula of Phuket."

"Amidst the hills of the former coconut plantation architect Ed Tuttle has created a secluded small paradise where a timeless elegant design and modern luxury harmonize with the traditional architectural style of Thailand."

"A special highlight are Amanpuri’s Amancruises. In the early morning we start with the 27 metres yacht ‘Maha Bhetra’ to our full-day cruise to the small islets and bays of Phang Nga and Krabi. … Besides the luxurious swimming vessel we are very impressed by the dreamlike setting of the sea. The attentive crew caters for any needs and fulfils our wishes almost before we have verbalized them, and we are spoiled with citrus-scented towels, cold drinks and Thai specialities."

"Twenty five years ago, the opening of Amanpuri resort saw high style arrive in a backpacker haven"

"It's all about the details, from candles and musicians around the pool at dinner time to the edible flowers mixed in with the pomelo and seabass carpaccio served on richly ornate fine china in the Japanese restaurant."

"My stay at the five-bedroom ocean view villa in the Amanpuri in Phuket was as close to a perfect vacation as you can get."
